The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD soared into storefronts last week on Friday, July 16. So, it might be too early for a sale, but GameStop doesn’t think so. If you’ve been feeling FOMO about Skyward Sword discourse, you can join the high-flying fun now for $10 off at GameStop.
For context, Skyward Sword costs $59.99 at full price. The discounted version at GameStop costs $49.94. It might not be a crazy 50% off deal, but it’s worth considering for a game that basically just released last weekend. It’s also worth considering the $10 off a $75 purchase deal that GameStop offers if you have more than one item you want.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword takes place at the beginning of The Legend of Zelda timeline and fleshes out the series’ history. Legend has it that the Goddess Hylia sealed away a dark force beneath the surface and reincarnated as a mortal to live with the people of Skyloft among the clouds. Knight-in-training Link sets off to attend the Wing Ceremony with his childhood friend, Princess Zelda. However, while all this is happening, a dark legend is brewing under the sky.
Skyward Sword is controversially known as one of the weakest Zelda games–a reputation aggravated by awkward motion controls. It still rates highly among critics but doesn’t reach the same standards as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. VG247’s Skyward Sword HD review respects the traces of Breath of the Wild in the gameplay and honors the HD version as an improvement on the original. However, it doesn’t change that Skyward Sword lacks the cohesion to be a knockout game of its own.
